Chef Client 12.2.0 Released


#1

Happy Thursday Everyone,

Just released Chef Client 12.2.0. You can read all about it at

Thanks,
Jay


#2

For the future, can you please do the announce when you start the release instead of at the end? It looks like it takes at least an hour for the whole process to complete and in that hour you might get a new version of Chef that you didn’t know existed depending on how you install things (omnitruck, rubygems, packagecloud).

I just upgraded my Debian Wheezy boxes and hit what appears to be a bug in that it fails to start if no HOME environment variable is set.

I’ve filed an issue for this here: https://github.com/chef/chef/issues/3153

Thanks,

Daniel

Hi all,
Chef 12.2.0 has a regression that will prevent you from running chef-client
in situations where the HOME environment variable is unset. This will
likely break anybody running chef-client as a service. We are currently
working on getting a release out. For now, if you are running chef-client
as a service, it’s probably best to wait for 12.2.1 before upgrading.

The issue is tracked on GitHub at https://github.com/chef/chef/issues/3153

Chef 12.2.0 has been yanked from omnitruck and rubygems. We are now working
on building Chef Client 12.2.1 that includes the fix for #3153.
